    Default Interesting Topical Piece From McWilliams Football and the Crisis!

    Germany and Spain's football clubs are reflected in their respective attitudes towards money and whether to spend or save!
    There is much talk that Germany is the new Spain in soccer terms and will take over both club and international reins from them!

    What Germany's football success tells us about the eurozone crisis - Independent.ie

    Looking forward to your views on the matter!

    Do you have some sort of OCD compulsion thing where every sentence must end with an exclamation mark?

    Ropey metaphor from McWilliams.
    Good luck to him though.If newspapers are prepared to pay for such indulgent rambling.
    What are his theories about Swansea winning the league cup ?
    I love all the different cheeses.

    I'm grand! I've not said anything about Urko's little habit since he arrived even though it was instantly annoying! It has reached the point now where it's hard to be bothered reading his posts! Cos I keep imagining one of those little yapper doggies! His posts might even have interesting points! But! I don't know! Cos they're too irritating to read!

    It's not quite as simple as McW suggests.

    For one thing, the Bundesliga teams are actually Special Purpose Vehicles (remember those?) hived off from the parent club.

    I thought that column sounded familiar -- it's essentially the same column he wrote last year for the SBP!
